I am …

I am the very bane of your existence
I slither my way through your consciousness
eating away at all that is good
all that is pure
 Justifying the ugliest of acts
that’s me
Stealing the gleam of a child’s eye
That’s me too
I am the black smoke that hinders all your reason
I deprive you of all your sense
and leave you a worthless,
seething monstrosity
I fester in your heart and mind
body and soul
I consume every last inch
of your humanity
Few can resist me
for I am inviting
and to the belligerent of minds,
 To my tactics, all are susceptible
and all vulnerable
So shield yourself, oh victim
You cannot afford to let me in
Purge me and thwart my efforts. Vehemently.
It is your only salvation
So what am I?
